In Living Color Book Set


In the year of 1773, the book Poems on Various Subjects, Religious and Moral made Phillis Wheatley the first African-American woman to become a published writer. Sold into slavery in West Africa at 7 years of age, she was educated in Boston by her owner John Wheatley and his family, which culminated in the publication of her aforementioned poetry collection in London, 1773. Uniting Wheatley's collected works with important 20th century African-American literature including Invisible Man, A Raisin in the Sun, and The Color Purple, readers can appreciate the impact her works have had on generations of writers. Featuring an original painting of Wheatley by Denver-based artist Detour (Thomas Evans), Juniper Books' colorful custom jackets will help to make this important collection the centerpiece of your library. The books are published by The Modern Library, Harcourt Inc, George Braziller Inc, and Oxford University Press.
